Father of Kwadwo Asamoah, Emmanuel Kwesi Asamoah, has stated that his son has not retired from the senior national side, Black Stars of Ghana.
It was rumoured that the Inter Milan midfielder had decided to retire from the Black Stars.
However, his dad has said that the 31-year-old is ready to return to the Black Stars when handed a call-up.
“It doesn’t bother me [that Kwadwo has been absent from the national team since Afcon] because that’s how the game of football ensues. There’s a replacement for every single player so that’s how the job of football works. There are a lot of prospects on the horizon. He hasn’t retired from the Black Stars, if he receives a call-up he will honour it," Emmanuel told Kumasi-based Ashh FM.
Asamoah has represented Ghana at the highest level as he played for the Black Stars at the 2010 and 2014 World Cup tournaments.
President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo recently set up a COVID-19 fund and called on civil society and individuals to donate to help a worthy cause.
Since the president set up the COVID-19 fund, Ghanaian footballers such as Asamoah Gyan, Andre Ayew, Kasim Nuhu and Danny Welbeck among others have donated either in cash or in kind to support the government of Ghana in the fight against the deadly virus.
